As the highly anticipated release date for director Amrit Rai’s OMG 2 approaches, it appears that the film starring Akshay Kumar and Pankaj Tripathi won’t make its scheduled debut on August 11th. Despite public relations efforts claiming no delay, various challenges have arisen, making the situation uncertain.

One major hurdle revolves around the film’s theme, which explores teenage self-discovery, causing concerns over censorship. However, an even more significant problem now emerges, which puts the film’s future in jeopardy. The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has demanded a change in Akshay Kumar‘s character from Lord Shiva to a messenger of Lord Shiva.

This unexpected alteration requires the producers to either edit or delete multiple sequences featuring Akshay Kumar donning the blue skin complexion of Lord Shiva. According to a reliable source, this process involves either removing the mentioned sequences or digitally altering the colour, both of which demand extra time and financial resources.

Akshay Kumar’s OMG 2 is set to clash with Sunny Deol’s Gadar

As a result of these complications, the August 11th release of OMG 2, starring Akshay Kumar and Pankaj Tripathi, seems highly unlikely at this moment. The filmmakers now face the challenging task of addressing the CBFC’s request and managing the additional production requirements, leaving fans eagerly awaiting further updates on the film’s new release date.

Sunny Deol’s much-anticipated movie, Gadar 2, and Akshay Kumar’s Oh My God 2 (OMG 2) are both scheduled for release on August 11, 2023. In a recent interview, Sunny, who shares the screen with Ameesha Patel in Gadar 2, was asked about the clash between the two films.

He fondly recalled a past experience when his film Gadar: Ek Prem Katha faced a similar situation, going head-to-head with Aamir Khan’s Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India. Sunny expressed his viewpoint, questioning the need for people to compare movies when each film stands on its own and has its own unique qualities.
